She told the following story.
When my friends Amy and Bob got married, I made a tapestry for them that had their names "Amy and Bob" on it, in the middle of a heart, signifying their life-long love.
After their divorce, Amy came out of the closet and announced she was marrying her Lesbian lover, Sue. She brought me the tapestry. "Can you pull out Bob's name and weave in Sue's?" she asked. "I want this to say Amy and Sue, not Amy and Bob."
And I was surprised at my reaction! I was reluctant to do this! And I have always thought of myself as a caring liberal!
I turned to her and asked the only question that needed asking. "If she had said, I'm leaving Bob and marrying Fred. Will you yank out Bob's name and sew in Fred's? I want the tapestry to say "Amy and Fred", would you have been at all distressed?"
"Oh, no!" she replied, her eyes beaming, grinning a stupid grin. "That would not have bothered me at all!"
Over at the Ink Desk, where I mirrored my post on The Scandal of Coffee and Donuts, Fr. Matthew Schneider comments ...
AUGUST 24 2014 | BY FR MATTHEW P. SCHNEIDER, LCI recently tweeted something similar to your whole issue about gay marriage, marriage, courtship et al:
Serial adultery & divorce destroys marriage more than gay marriage.
B4 fighting gay marriage, we need to restore marriage.

Some of the "inside the beltway" Catholics got offended but unfortunately as I responded later:
If marriage is just "2 people who love each other sexually & want to spend a long time together" denying gays is discrimination.
The desecration of Marriage in this country did not begin with the "gays", nor will it end with them.
